If you’ve turned on country radio at all in the last couple of months, odds are that you’ve heard Jordan Davis’ “Singles You Up.” I personally love the song and find it super catchy– and apparently, the rest of the country does, too as “Singles You Up” is currently sitting at no. 5 on the Country Airplay chart.
In a recent interview with Billboard, Davis shared that the song has actually made him somewhat of a matchmaker. “I’m fixin’ people up all over the country,” he said. “I’ve had a buddy of mine say that his friend sent the song to a girl, so I need to follow up with him — I’m anxious to see if he got a date, or if she told him he was a creep.”
Davis shared that when he wrote the song, he wanted to make sure the guy featured in the lyrics didn’t come off like a jerk. “We got a little ways into writing the song and realized that the guy just kind of looked, for lack of a better word, like an asshole,” Davis said. “We definitely had that mindset, like, ‘Let’s be careful in the way that we present both of these people.’ We wrote it in a respectful way.”
We’d say he did a pretty fine job!
